Umm. Will we eventually be able to delete our own movies? :O Or is that giving the users to much control?

It's safer to do it the way they have it now. People will always find a way to steal someone's account... As long as that's possible, with a delete feature they could get someone's password and just delete all of their movies. This way, they would need to find a way to hack their account here, and their email address. (And if the email isn't convincing, like it's just something such as "OMG DELETE MAH MOVAYS" Wade will probably look into it more and realize it isn't the actual person.)

"Users who have two entries flagged will no longer be able to submit content to the Portal until they have been cleared out. So do not submit something that might get flagged if you don't want to be temporarily banned."

What is that supose to mean can some one please elaborate?

Definitely! You are 100% right. That is definitely a safety/security feature that shouldn't be changed.

The author of the 2 movies had each of them whistled by members of Newgrounds for breaking the rules of what may not be in the flash movie you submit. This brings them under review by the administrators, and in the meantime, the author is banned from submitting movies to the portal. Depending on whether or not the flashes were rightfully whistled, the author may or may not be unbanned once the administrators have decided if he should be allowed to continue submitting flash movies.

One of my games got flagged and there wasn't anything wrong with it :/

It sucks cause I put alot of work into it and its one of my better games, and no one on NG can see it because some little peckerhead flagged it. Thanks to that assfuck I'm losing money in a sense in that that game would have boosted traffic to my site...

After you beat it, it would have an automatic popup to your site. I don't know what kind of popups you had on your site at the time you submitted it but if you had any, that's just adding to the amount of popups you got when you beat the game. People saw that and flagged it.

Wouldn't that totally defeat the purpose of the batting average system? Everyone will be running around submitting movies until they pass with a good score or delete them if they pass with a low one. There will be record numbers of A+ batting averages.

AH HA HA! You must love reading your own writing. You make like 9000 posts about the stupidest shit just to see yourself and now you want Newgrounds to waste even more space, interviewing you and other people who can't seem to shut up?
Here's a good question for your "interview" What inspired you to make a comment about every little thing, on every thread, your entire time on Newgrounds?

It is about time it is cleared up. As much as I like Tetris and the like, I am sick of them being resubmited all of the time.

Actually, your submission was flagged for breaking one of the Portal submission rules - it autospawned your site! I unflagged it and let it through, but please stick with prominent links in the future and avoid auto-spawning.


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

I emailed Wade a while back about deleting some flash, he did it within 5 minutes...I was kinda impressed, I was definatly expecting it to take longer..
And I was going to send an e-mail saying thanks, for the quick response and all...but, I figured he already gets enough crap filled emails, so - thanks Wade! ^^

I think at some point there should be some kind of "Newgrounds Apocalypse" where everything with a score under 3.50 or something is detroyed, deteted, gone! start from scratch!
That means a lot of my stuff would be gone too. but so what.
it probebly wasn't really that good anyway.

well that's what I think.

It' probebly won't happen though.

Thx Tom :)

I've stopped doing the auto-spawn stuff. Frankly what i've found is that people will be more inclined to visit my site if it's not smashed in their faces ;)

It was a time of experimentation :O

Let's see... One of your movies is the number 5. That's it.

Another is a 3 second movie with the rest being porn slideshows.

If you think either of those are suitable submissions, I suggest you re-evaluate what you consider to be suitable.

i no that no1 is gonna listen 2 me but ill say this just 2 say it.

i think that the response time on the emails are well slow and i no it has 2 be pretty hard answering bak 2 all the emails but as ppl said u dont jus want some punk sorting thru there emails 2 answer u its sort of personal thing. i think that NG should get certain people to answer to everything ppl flagged so it doesnt have 2 take up space because so many things are still out there that are flagged that no1 has deleted or even looked at. well thats my opinion pce

maybe you should add a feature to remove your own movies? and it instantly blams it for you (not getting a blam point of course)

this would solve the problems of the annoying emailers, (including me, woops)

There shouldn't BE the need for him to delete so many movies. The whole point of a batting average is to show your overall average for all of your work. Getting your lowest scored movies deleted all the time to make your batting average higher is pointless.
